Picking my jaw up off the floor over here.  That is a beauty all around.  I just want to stare at the pics of that bows back!
"The bow is the old first lyre,
the mono chord, the initial rune of fine art
The humanities grew out from archery as a flower from a seed
No sooner did the soft, sweet note of the bow-string charm the ear of genius than music was born, and from music came poetry and painting and..." Maurice Thompso

Sweet bow, man! Nice job on the Strunk wrap too, looks better than my first attempt. One thing that Mr. Strunk did on the wrap that he showed me was tamp down the lace so that it sinks into the leather a little bit. I use the flat side of our wooden meat tenderizer to whack it down and it makes for a smoother, more comfortable grip, especially on the back where all the lacing happens.

Good job, Cody! Great finish work, as usual!! :)

Great finish work as usual Cody.
